-In terms of tangible changes to actual comics produced, I suspect this is actually bigger news than Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, at least in the short term. I wonder how many DC editors are updating their resumes this afternoon…
-Bugs Bunny could totally kick Mickey Mouse’s ass. Just saying.
-Rob Liefeld isn’t young enough to be taking cheap shots about Paul Levitz’s age.
-Number of times Diane Nelson’s connection to Harry Potter is mentioned in the press release: 3. I’ve got to give them marks for restraint on that one.
-DC Entertainment will release roughly 90 comics a month, at least 5 of which aren’t going to be written by Geoff Johns.
-As one of his final acts as DC publisher, Paul Levitz screws Christopher Bird by returning to write the Legion of Superheroes. I’d find that really exciting if I was still fourteen; as it is, I just hope he’s happy. Levitz, that is. Bird’s funnier when he’s pissed off. Sorry Boss, but it’s true.
-Sorry, Joe Quesada. You had your chance in the spotlight and you waited too long. Nobody cares about Marvel and Disney now, that is soooo last week.
-A few years back, an acquaintance of mine predicted we’d see a day when DC and Marvel would stop publishing and instead license their characters out to be published by others. This is still a ways off, but I can actually envision a time when Dynamite Entertainment’s SPIDER-MAN comic vies with Todd McFarlane Productions’ BATMAN for top spot in the sales charts.
-Does anyone happen to have a spoon handy? After that last thing I feel an overwhelming urge to gouge my eyes out.
